Are you a convert from another site?  Did you find us by a search engine?  Random luck?  Garden Gnomes?

Long time Gone Gold resident, knew about you from your "occasional" and "subtle" reminders in the GG console forum that there was a CG article about something. ;)

At the GG apocalypse, was one of the refugees trying to find a new home.

I'd seen the name mentioned on GoneGold but never really paid much attention since I didn't have the time for another forum.  After the disappearance, one day it hit me "maybe they know on CG!" and I registered.

Ditto!  You probably knew me on GG as Rezzjedi.  Pete Rock (remember him?) and I worked together and were good friends.  He's married now so he is lost! :wink:

Being a long-time GGer, I recall a time when CG was an off-shoot "magazine" of GG.  That'd also be my route to here.  Registered a long time before the great forum exodus, but it took the great forum exodus for me to visit regularly.

I found CG because I was looking for Devil.

I followed his long train of meaningless posts and countless failed attempts at humor to right here.

i had been visiting GG since before CG was started...was only natural to check this place out once in a while after that.  i started visiting much more frequently, however, after the demise of GG.

I remember when CG was an "online magazine" or whatever...I had ventured there once in awhile, but as my interest towards consoles began to outweigh that of PC gaming, I became a regular visitor here.  I <3 you guys.

Learned about gonegold from comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.strategic what seems like a lifetime ago.

Learned about consolegold from gonegold, when consolegold wasn't around yet but looking for writers and such. Never paid attention to it as I am not a console gamer.

I was rescued from the swirling vortex of GG's demise by coming here and being accepted as a refugee.

I was a GG member for a long time, and once CG started up I would come over occasionally to read the reviews and stuff.  When GG thankfully went under, it seemed the logical place to go.

GG went down, I didn't know what to do with myself, remembered people mentioning posting on QT3, went there, didn't like it but saw mention of ConsoleGold, name brought back that 'Gold' vibe, came here, looked around and saw that it was good, registered, stayed, posting and reading, and I guess that's the end of my story.

Knew about the site pre-GG demise but not owning a console system had no reason to visit. Ventured into #gonegold and found people were headed here so joined the rest of the bleating sheep.

Long time GG'er, spent a lot of time in the Console Gaming forum, so it was inevitable that I would check out CG from time to time - I registered on the forum before GG went down, but didn't really post much until Rich pulled the plug.

If I remember correctly it was either a posted announcment by Rich or Dragon over at GoneGold.com. I think it was announced in the forums first, correct? God, coulda sore it was mentioned int he forums first then at the frontpage.

Count me in the early adopters.  I used to visit the front page and ignore the forums since I had GGF.  Now that's sort of reversed.  I still check you guys out for reviews.
